I recently finished this up.  Watching a friend's 24 hour build got my butt into gear and I figured that if he can do everything he can do in 24 hours, I had no excuse to not get my car done that day.

This kit wasn't too bad.  Missing only a couple of pieces, but I had spares in my stash so I didn't have to make a single part - that was nice for a change.  Everything I needed came from the extra '64 Plymouth I had.  On to the pics:

It's funny how you miss some things until you take a picture.  It's also funny how you miss some things when you're rushing to be finished.  While I did remember to paint the headliner, I forgot the insides of the fenders - I still have overspray there!  Doh!!

Anyway, here's a pic of the underside:

A shot of the engine compartment - thanks to my friend Tom for the inspiration to put mesh over the velocity stacks and thanks to my wife Kathi for (sort of) allowing the use of a reusable coffee filter which is no longer reusable:

A friend of mine had an old '64 330.  I always thought the front end was butt-ugly.  Her car was puke green in color, so I used to call it her "swamp doggy".  Well, Here's a closeup shot of the swamp doggy front end - I'll leave it to you to decide how ugly it is for yourself:

Here is the interior.  I tried out acetate gauges for the first time on this under dash pod - they are different

Finally, here's one last parting shot at the car before it literally goes under glass:

Very good looking build.

 

Love it,  I've built 4 of the lindberg Dodges so far, And I've got  another 8-9 on the shelf so I might be slightly biased

"It's funny how you miss some things until you take a picture."        Isn't that the truth, especially when you post it on here, it happens to me every time.  :lol:   Every time I see the "Color Me Gone" car I get excited.  I love your example, nice work, especially for a 24 hour build.

I have no idea how I managed to miss this build, but it sure looks great! There can never be enough Stockers/Super Stockers. I really like the paint on it, and the extra details you have added are really nice.

 

Now, let's go Racing, I have built the Ramchargers version of this kit. :D
